Janet’s RHYTHM NATION album added to the Library of Congress National Recording Registry

Each year, the National Recording Registry chooses 25 recordings for preservation that are judged to showcase “the range and diversity of American sound heritage.” The choices are made from hundreds of nominations. This year’s list of 25 includes Janet Jackson‘s record-setting 1989 album Rhythm Nation 1814, which received the most votes in the public nomination process last year.

Janet joins brother Michael as well as legends Elvis, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones as artists bestowed with the honor.

None of Madonna’s albums are in there.

No one will ever forget Jane Jacket or that album, whatever it is called.

by Queenreply 203/24/2021

Legendary. The album’s social issues content is still timely all these years later.

One of the last great comedy albums.


OMG, I'm laughing so hard just thinking about it!

by Queenreply 403/24/2021

This is great. It’s one of only three albums from the 80s (and of all time) to have 7 top 10 Hot 100 hits (Thriller and Born in the USA are the other two).

A juggernaut album that put her in a class with the pop legends. A very well-deserved honor indeed.

This is a prestigious accomplishment.

Kermit has joined legends Prince, Elvis, MJ, The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, and now Janet with this VERY prestigious honor. It's the music equivalent to the L.O.C. National Film Registry, which is also a big deal.

R21 Talking to Janbot is like living the Bill Murray movie Groundhog Day. Like most psychotics, she has latched onto a revolting, fat, has-been from the 80s who had zero talents or abilities who used sex to sell herself but then eventually it destroyed her with Nipplegate.

Despite the fact I prefer janet and The Velvet Rope to any of her other albums, Rhythm Nation is certainly a strong album, chock full of hits. The only songs I don't enjoy on it are "Living in a World (They Didn't Make)" - too depressing - and "Someday is Tonight" because I have never really liked listening to Janet fake orgasms on her albums (she's done sex songs better on the aforementioned albums, in my opinion). But the rest are all great songs, even if I haven't listened to the album for yonks.

R29 is photoshopped. Clearly.

by Queenreply 3403/28/2021

Janet's plastic surgery addiction is well-known and she has done serious and irreparable damage to her face just like her brother. That's the end result.

Oh THAT'S why I don't know her!

by Queenreply 3603/28/2021

I heard she's broke. It's too bad she doesn't get any money with this award.

by Queenreply 3703/28/2021

There have been many threads here about her money troubles R37. She was fired from two record companies due to poor sales and she can't sell tickets to her concerts so now she can't get another studio to bankroll or sign her. She must self finance her own music and concerts. Since she is broke and has no money neither will be happening again. Her career is deader than the dinosaurs.

At least she has something like the Library of Congress adding one of her old eighties albums to their registry. Who knew that even existed or was relevant to anybody?

by Queenreply 3803/28/2021

That's sad. Janet, call me 🤙

by Queenreply 3903/28/2021

Janet Jackson has more money in one bank account than any of you AIDS-infected queers ever had in a shoe box. She is rich now, has been rich all of her life and will always BE rich. Unlike her contemporaries who've had infamous money woes because of spendthrift lifestyles, drug addictions, etc., Janet has always been known to be a shrewd businesswoman and has never had any issues with her finances. As for the record companies, she left Virgin after her LANDMARK, multi-million dollar deal was fulfilled, and she bailed from Island-Def Jam because LA Reid did not promote her album properly (despite it opening at #1). In other words, before you come on here to talk shit, make sure you know what the fuck you're talking about.

by Queenreply 4003/28/2021

That achievement is not to be taken lightly. Not only does it validate the album's perennial relevance and importance in pop culture, but it makes Janet only the fifth black woman to have an album on the Registry. She is now the only one of her female contemporaries to attain this achievement (Whitney has a song on the registry, but not an album. Madonna, Mariah, etc., are nowhere to be found on the list).

by Queenreply 4103/28/2021

R40 “AIDS-infected queers” really? I have no doubt Janet would think you are despicable. She doesn’t need fans like you.

by Queenreply 4203/28/2021

It's intersting to me that although Janet was no doubt massively influential, she doesn't have ANY songs that do well on youtube or spotify, at all. You would think for someone so massively influential on today's pop and R&B artists, that she'd at least have two or three songs doing well...but no.

by Queenreply 4303/28/2021

R43 Tying taste or success to what a bunch of semi-brain dead teenagers play is hardly credible.

by Queenreply 4503/28/2021

R45, I agree with you to an extent but the fact is that longevity is tied to new generations liking your music. There is a reason Queen, The Beatles and Michael Jackson are still talked about and remembered--it's because they are the three most streamed legacy artists.

I've read a few articles that said except for MJ and Janet, none of the Jackson bros worked. They lived just to mooch off their two rich siblings. MJ would only pay them 1500 each when they performed on his tours. That's about what they're worth. What a fucked up family of loathsome parasites.

by Queenreply 8904/11/2021

^Sure, Jan.

Janet Jackson is beyond wealthy. Never a drug addict or a gambler, she has always been smart with her money and a wise investor (she initially wanted to go to college for banking). Having a decades-long career as a singer/actress that includes multiple #1 albums, two record-breaking album deals that pocketed her millions and gave her control of her masters, songwriting credits, real estate over the world, an art collection, massive concerts and various endorsement deals, this is a woman who will never be broke. Now YOU, on the other hand...

The Library of Congress doesn't think that any of Madonna's albums are as socially or culturally relevant as Rhythm Nation, and they would be correct.

by Queenreply 18204/15/2021

Janet got in because of diversity, nothing more. Just like how she got into the R&R HoF (after fifteen tries). She's nothing more than a diversity hire.

by Queenreply 18304/15/2021

Rhythm Nation 1814 is the Janet album that has aged the worst. Sounds very dated. Control and Janet are better records.

by Queenreply 19604/16/2021

Only eldergays know who Janet Jackson is, but they're confusing her with Ja'Net DuBois.

by Queenreply 19704/16/2021

Anyone born between 1960 and 1990 grew up with Janet. They are hardly Eldergays, fucking moron.

by Queenreply 19804/16/2021

It's just trying to get a rise out of you, R198. Pay IT no attention.

by Queenreply 19904/16/2021

I keep confusing her with Janet Leigh.

by Queenreply 20004/16/2021

If you were born in 1960, you are 61 years old. In DL territory, that makes you an ElderGay.

If you were born in 1990, you're too young to care. But you're officially over thirty, and you've crossed the line.

At DataLounge, make no mistake, we worship and envy youth.

'Jane Jacket' still makes me laugh.

by Queenreply 21004/25/2021

The only lesson Bey took from Jane Jacket was to not show her areolas all da time or she'd have to use payola to get radio/media to get heard. Nipplegate caused the industry to blacklist Jane and her career never recovered. Queen Bey can actually sing and dance, unlike Jane. So she has nothing to gain from Jane's sad nips.

'85 to '93 was the nadir of good music and rise of non-singers, and crappy 80s, early 90s synth production. Janet was definitely the Queen of Crap in that unfortunate period.
